Terrible Taste in Mouth

Posted by Joanne (Hartland, WI) on 11/06/2006

I have a terrible taste in my mouth. It tastes like a dirty dishrag. I was to the dentist and the doctor and they cannot find any thing wrong. I have had it for 5 weeks now. I need help. I do not feel like eating or drinking anything and am becoming nauseated from the taste. Help me.

Dear Joanne: The dirty dish rag tastes in the mouth is either a imbalances in mineral, electrolytes, pH imbalance, or excess free radical heavy metal or any combination of it. So the best way is just to get all your body's chemical imbalances to normal.

If you can get a heavy metal tester, check your urine first. Certain heavy metals will check for presences of free radical heavy metals. Here in Thailand, more than 90% of all people are tested positive for heavy metals, either copper, zinc, or mercury and cadmium. While EDTA is quite effective in copper, zinc and lead, it does have some limitations in handling the much heavier mercury and cadmium. Assuming you don't want to buy or can't buy these tester, then just eat some fresh chinese parsley. These should help reduce the heavy metals anyway and it won't cost that much.

Correcting the imbalances body's pH and oxidation reduction potential can be done with one formula, one whole freshly squeezed lemon, add water to 1/2 glass, then keep adding baking soda at 1/4 teaspoon interval until it the reacted solution tastes like water or until the fizz is no longer apparent. This simple formula will correct both the bicarbonate deficiency, pH imbalances, and the body's antioxidant levels all at the same time. It will also correct somewhat imbalances in electrolyte as well.

Just to make sure the electrolytes are balanced, then just take some sports drink, only one per day is more than enough.

Fulvic acid should help balance out the mineral imbalance. Again if you can't find it, then try something really simple. Get sea salt. Just add 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt per liter of drinking water. Sea salt contains traces of mineral anyway.

My experience has been that lack of appetite is often a vitamin B complex deficiency. Taken at 100 mg. of B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8 and 100 mcg. of B12, for example, taken only once a day should do the trick.

Since I am getting increasingly conservative, my rule of thumb is if you get better after taking vitamin B complex, then you should discontinue taking them. Just take enough, but don't overdo it. In most cases the appetite should restore, if not then take some multivitamin and mineral to give the extra push. These are just the basics.
